Replacement of damaged implant. Can I achieve a symmetrical result?

I have had my sub pectoral implants 330cc for 4 years. Recently I had an accident and as the CT shows the implant on the right side is seriously ruptured and needs to be replaced as it also causes discomfort. The last result I was mediocre as I ended up with cup D instead of C. Now I wonder if I could do a revision of both breasts at the same time, decreasing size and breast lift. What does this implicate, respectively what does exchange only implicate. Can I achieve a symmetrical result

Thank you for your questions. Yes, a bilateral revision with implant exchange and breast lift is most likely in order. It is to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in person to review and plan your ultimate aesthetic goals. Best of luck.

If you choose to go down in size, I would suggest doing both. If you are fairly symmetrical now and like your size, you could just choose to replace the damaged implant. I would suggest meeting with a board certified plastic surgeon and discussing all your options.
